HSt.J Attwater Father Letter
14 Old Square
18 Oct. 1921
I am sorry & apologize for the delay in replying to your circular, as all my furniture including photographs is temporarily warehoused I have found a difficulty in raising a photograph. The enclosed I have borrowed as such I glad [sic] to have it back when you have made such use of it as you need. You may find some additional details in the statement which I made. Aubers Ridge (9 May 1915) was the only considerable action in which my  boy was engaged but he saw a good deal of fighting during the first winter in the [brickworks?] near La Bassée [??& late on or about the ‘Double Gassing’ of hateful memory??]. He was killed by a trench mortar found in the first trench line & is buried at Maroc.
I had thought that one of my sons had already replied to your circular but regret to find this is not so.
Yours very truly
